More Days Out!

I have reached the end of my two weeks off work,,, back to the grindstone on Tuesday! My DH and I didn't go away but spent the time visiting places we like and a few new ones. I must admit that we did not argue in the two weeks together! Our working hours are so that I finish and he just starts, so we don't really see much of each other,, So when we do have time together we enjoy it!!

These first three photos are of the Severn Bridge in to Wales,, Cardiff Indoor Market, and a statue of Elvis!
The photo of the bridge was taken whilst DH was driving,, and I was finding the £6 for the toll! We went to Cardiff, cos we have never been before. There were loads of shops,,,, actually a few too many,, but next time we go it will be to see the Castle and the other historic 'bits'!!

The above photos were taken in Langport, Somerset! We have lived in the area for 3 years and never visited the local towns! The houses in the first two photos, my DH tells me, are eco houses.

Very nice churches in Langport (forgotten this ones name), and also a Hanging Chapel, where they used to hang convicts in years gone by, and has connections with the Masons!
I have done a little bit of knitting and sewing,, I have made
these mitts using a pattern that Jane put on her blog! Turned out okay I think! And I have been working on a wallhanging for my quilt groups challenge. It has to be a 16" square wallhanging using a month of the year, and as there are 12 in the group we had a month each! Mine is May,, and here is a little taster,,,
Can't say much more about it in case one of my quilt group reads this!!


  1. It looks as though you made the most of your two weeks off and enjoyed visits to some lovely places.
    Love those mitts. My hands are so cold right now I am going to have a look at the pattern and if I have the right wool on hand I'll be making some.
    I see yours are in the regulation purple!
    Love the combination of applique and stitchery in your block.

  2. Love the photos Caz, it looks like you have had a good time. I have an almost identical one going across the bridge when my DH was driving! Also love the mittens and looking forward to seeing the finished items from you and your group! Love Liz x

  3. thank you so much for the sightseeing tour. I love the pictures.

    the sneek preview from your wallhanging is looking good

  4. Sounds as though you've both enjoyed your two weeks off Caz, I love Cardiff too, and would really like to spend a few days there. Your mittens look really cosy, and definitely needed at the moment! brrrrrr.....freezing here!
